Today is our anniversary

31 years ago, Carol and I were married. We combined families and all of a sudden there were Carol, me and 4 girls ranging in age from 6 to 13, in a 24'X36' house with one bath. Until we were able to add a family room, master bath and dining area, it was a real test for me to use the bathroom. Many times, I had to go to work in order to take a shower. The girls made a sign for the rear of our car when we left for our honeymoon saying "It's about time, mom and dad!" We also split our honeymoon in half, taking the children with us for the second half. We went to Niagara Falls, Ontario in a small Class C motorhome. While there, we were on a tour bus and the operator asked who, in this homeymoon capital, were newlyweds. When Carol and I raised our hands, the rest of the riders looked quizzingly at us because they had been all talking and everyone knew they were ours. Today, we had a lot of laughs and great thoughts as we talked of 31 years ago. Thanks, Carol, for the past 31 years. They were great. Now we can discover what the next 31 has in store.
